the post office, senator harry reid said you need approval from congress to halt delivery on saturday, how do you make the change without them signing off on the plan? we have an interpretation of the plan that means we can move ahead. there's people with other opinions. the good thing is this, the current budget resolution expires at the end of march. that gives us six weeks to work it out. what i ask congress to do, eliminate the restrictions so we can move to six days of package deliver and five days of mail delivery. >> how much does it save? >> $2 billion. we will have post offices open on saturday and we will deliver picture packages. door to door delivery of letters will go away. >> there's been talk that e-mail caused mail to drop. but there's the talk that the congress has had just as much an affect on the post office. what can congress do to save the post on office? >> here is our situation. we've lost 60% of stamped mail. you put in the mailbox, because people pay bills online, it's easy and free. you cannot argue. that the other thing we need congress to do is move ahead on leg
of pressure not only directed at republicans but the number of democrats. by harry reid who i think will rather not bring up a vote on the assault weapons ban. the president was able to move the needle and say look, you're going to vote against something that's fine. but at least be on the record. tell the american people why you have a straight up-or-down vote. i do think the chances of gun control are much better. they don't have to require -- to have a vote in the senate. if they can get a straight up or down bill, assault weapon ban passage, john boehner suggested he may not approve some of the proposals to the floor unless they have majority support. assault weapons ban won't have majority ban. if people support gun control can get the up-or-down vote, they may find some success. that's where it is smart for the president last night. we all talked about the merits of gun control and what not. the process needs to allow the american people to keep members of congress on record on this issue. >> stephanie: thank you for calling me from the train bathroom to have this incredible c
